Arquus launches French army VT4 Standard 2 4x4 vehicle production lines


On December 7th, 2018, the French DGA notified the second tier of the VT4 program to Arquus. This tier comprises 1,200 new Standard 2 vehicles. Production and delivery of the Standard 2 started at the beginning of the year. Arquus is aiming at delivering 800 Standard 2 VT4 vehicles in 2019.

To meet this objective, the Arquus plant in Saint-Nazaire has reworked its VT4 production line in order to add new work posts. The experience of the VT4 Standard 1 has also allowed reviewing the procedures to guarantee optimal efficiency and the highest possible level of quality. The services package, provided by ARQUUS, is totally integrated, innovative, with a firm commitment on technical operational readiness (90%) on the whole fleet.

The VT4 is a 4x4, non-armored, light and versatile vehicle, designed for command post and liaison missions. It can accommodate 5 soldiers or 4 FELIN system-equipped operators. With its payload of up to 900kg, it is designed for homeland operations (Sentinelle, training, liaison), and for foreign operations in low-threat regions. The VT4 Standard 2 integrates 350 new references, and offers several new evolutions compared to Standard 1: integration of modern communication and positioning systems, extra racks, towing equipment, and blackout lights. The VT4 Standard 2 is also designed to be air-transportable, in order to grant it extra tactical capabilities.

In 2018, the first 500 Standard 1 VT4s were delivered to the French Army. 3,700 Arquus VT4s will equip the armed forces by 2025, replacing the old Peugeot P4 vehicle.
